    I like the first one for its color and textures. The lighting is cool too, did you use the onboard flash here?

    Actually I like them all for different reasons.

    Boy when you're wrong, you are wrong! That tree is not dead...It's resting!

    thanks Michael! Yes the flash was used here. I don't have an external flash yet. Still figuring out the bells and whistles that came with the camera.

    it is a cool tree though. and I am sorry Michael but I've watched it for a few months and I can assure you it is dead. It's definitely not pining for the fjords!

    I like the way the on board handled the first shot, to my mind it got a decent fill light splayed out across the scene which IMHO gives the shot legs.

    I've seen similar sights in my travels (lots of deadfall in NS) but have never really felt like I could do them justice. This is a pretty good attempt here, Bambi. Nice captures. The first is my favourite too. The fill light helped nicely.

    thanks guys. As a first attempt I'm happy with it but I will go back and try again. My fingers froze after 5 minutes and I had to leave. But with luck there's a break in the weather and I will get back. I put one of the shots in the assignment thread and here's the last half decent one.
    Thanks for explaining how the flash helped here. I am still trying to learn about how flash works/doesn't work on a shot.

    Nice set of photos.
